On This Day - Your Contributions

Please help us to build our database of events in the History of Northamptonshire.


Go instead to our page for announcing future events if you are looking to publicise those.

Our aim is to have something listed for every day of the year which will be interesting and informative. Some days are anniversaries of the birth or death of a famous citizen. The dates of battles and other historical events are worthy of note. It's interesting to know when an organisation was founded or was closed down.

Where possible, we like to offer a link to additional information, images and other relevant resources.

We are very happy to include dates relevant to local industries or even to well-known Northamptonshire businesses, provided always that we don't believe that any accompanying material constitutes little more than an advertisement.

Items should be of general interest to our readers and, although we might, for example, highlight someone born in Northamptonshire who achived fame elsewhere, there must always be a significant relevance to the county.

Please e-mail us your text, illustrations or documents. Because the format of appropriate information is so varied, we think that is the best way to transfer it.

Please send only whatever you are happy for us to edit and arrange in any way we think appropriate to fit our normal styling, the space available and other requirements.

We always need:

We aim to honour copyright; we are a not-for-profit venture. So please send only material created by yourself which you are happy for us to edit and reproduce without payment or is sent with expressed permission from the author/creator to edit and reproduce free or charge or where at least 70 years has passed since the death of the author/creator.

We look forward to you helping us make this an interesting and engaging feature of our website and will be very grateful for your contributions.
